Almondy’s story is an unusual one. The Almondy bakery was set up back in 1982 by two young Swedish men, Kent and Lennart, who had a dream of building a boat and sailing around the world – until they discovered a recipe from 1890 for an ‘irresistible’ cake. The pair never looked back and today, Almondy’s cakes are exported to more than 45 countries, where they are enjoyed by 106 million people every year through retail and out-of-home. From its humble beginnings, when the first cakes were baked in a pizza oven, the bakery has gone from strength to strength without ever losing sight of its roots.
